Rey Mysterio Title Shot Announced For WWE Starrcade

Rey Mysterio has officially been announced for WWE Starrcade on November 24 in Cincinnati, Ohio. After his win over WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura in a World Cup qualifying match on SmackDown 1000, the two will now face off at the former WCW event with the title now on the line.

The rest of the card as it is currently advertised is as follows:

  • The Shield vs. Braun Strowman, Dolph Ziggler & Drew McIntyre (Cincinnati Street Fight)
  • WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe
  • WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair (Steel Cage Match)
  • WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bar vs. The New Day
  • Special Performance: Elias with Ric Flair

The ‘Master of the 619’ signed a two year deal with the WWE after some time of negotiations between both parties back in September.

Mysterio made a surprise return at the Royal Rumble earlier this year in arguably the best shape of his career. He also made an appearance at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, WWE‘s first event in Saudi Arabia, last year.

With Mysterio back, this opens up many opportunities for 5-star matchups on the blue brand. Matches with AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, The Miz, and Samoa Joe have the potential to steal the show and make SmackDown Live a must-watch program for WWE.

Mysterio is one of the most decorated and most recognizable stars in WWE, holding multiple championships including both the World Heavyweight Championship and WWE Championship.

According to Wrestling Inc, here is Mysterio’s upcoming schedule with the WWE:

  • October 16, Washington: SmackDown 1000
